Brighter Skies In Kpop

YAYYY~ Nice to see some good things happening in kpopland:) I’ll just be doing a quick recap of the more recent developments 🙂

JYPE Abolishes Slave Contracts!

~Before I start just wanna say I LOVE JYPPPPPP :D~

JYP Entertainment, who currently has the Wonder Girls,2PM, etc artistes under its charge has announced on the 26th, that it will adopt the standard contract protocol set by the Korea Fair Trade Commission. They will thus become the first management agency in Korea to abolish what many has come to know as “slavery contracts” –  contracts signed by artistes where the terms mainly interferes with their personal life, infringing their human rights and weren’t really beneficial to them.

Junsu Has A Role in the Mozart Musical!

On November 26th, netizens became aware that Junsu’s role in the upcoming musicalMozart had been confirmed. And while it has only just been announced, the musical is now currently #1 on the ticket reservations list! There’s no doubt that Cassiopeians are behind this! They have even already nicknamed the musical ‘Xiahzart!’

Big Bang + TVXQ On Japanese Shows

Fuji TV revealed the list of participants on their homepage on the 25th. Big Bang and TVXQ will join fellow Japanese artists V6KinKi KidsHirai KenArashiEXILEKoda KumiYuzuAyakaAoyama Thelma and SPEED. That’s not all. Big Bang will also join TVXQ at Nihon TV’s Best Hit Music Award 2009, which will broadcast on the 26th.

Jaejoong Is NOT (?) Dating Abiruu Yuu

Japanese magazine Lady Seven had reported earlier thatTVXQ’s Jaejoong and talent Abiru Yuu was spotted dating in Tokyo at 3am in the morning, Jaejoong’s representatives are claiming that the rumors are not true. In addition, the magazine had stated that Abiru Yuu told Jaejoong that if he continued to fool around with other women, that she would leave him. Which is rather amusing as Abiru Yuu has a reputation in Japan for supposedly datingYamashita Tomohisa and cheating on him with various Johnny’s Entertainment idols.

Regardless, Jaejoong’s representative stated:

“About 6 months ago, we had an outing with many employees from AVEX Entertainment, where Abiru Yuu was also present. They met for the first time at the outing, but we have never seen them together after that. We are shocked with the reports that the two were spotted dating, it is untrue.”

~Yay Or Boo? Well yay for JJ fans I guess and Yay for Abiruu who will not suffer due to “myseterious” circumstances haha~

Or did their faith die? hmmm ordidtheygetassasinatedbySMforprotestingtoomuch? anyways…that’s only in Korea right..I’m under the impression though, that the no. of international fans are growing…In whatever case, several or few, the Cassies left standing will support DBSK forevaaaa am I right?

Cassie-Made Love Melody Plagiarized???


credit:lbl04@YT

OHmyGawd. More controversy…

source: delacroix@allkpop

A person named Shin, who writes songs / music for a hobby, had posted a song titled “Cause I want you” on a song writing community on the web and was contacted by Soh, a Cassie who was involved in Love Melody project. Soh told Shin, “I came across this song and I love it. Do you mind if I use this song so I can give a little gift to TVXQ? We’re not doing it to make money.” Shin happily agreed to this, but a month later he found out that the song which copied the melody of his song was being sold online. What enraged him further was the fact that Cassies posted the songwriter as “Eun Hyun,” not giving any credit to Shin.

Shin contacted the Cassies who led this project, and said that he doesn’t care whether they sell the song for money or not, he just wanted himself listed as the songwriter. He contacted Soh and Soh responded by telling him not to falsely accuse Cassies, and even said “We revised the melody and it’s just sampling, why are you making such a big deal out of this” and “Go ahead and sue us, lets see who gets hurt.”

Love Melody has already been advertised as a song written and sung by Cassies and Shin has no doubt suffered damage from this situation. Will he be able to hear any word of apologies from the biggest and most powerful fan club in Korea? We’ll see but the song writer seems to want justice. With TVXQ going through so much drama, it seems their fan club can’t escape it as well.
————————————————–

wahhh~ “Go ahead and sue us, lets see who gets hurt.” I think that’s the kind of mentality SM would have and not DBSK. Isn’t this ironic. And the piano part of the song sounds like…cut and paste to me who’s not really familiar with wth ‘sampling’ is like if it’s not plagiarizing. Check it out at Allkpop. I think they should just write his name up in credits and apologize. Hinting that they might tap on Cassie strength to silence him is also just shameful and as a DBSK fan myself, I cannot say I’m with them on this one.

Kpop Reacts To TVXQ Controversy + Cassies Keep The Faith

TVXQ and Cassiopeia are one. (TVXQ and Cassiopeia, we are one.)
TVXQ, the Rising Gods of the East
Cassiopeia, the guardian of the constellation of TVXQ

Recently, there have been a lot of news regarding TVXQ, and we are very worried; SM is currently using many ways to attack TVXQ in an attempt to divide the gods and us. These actions are unbearable, but SM will never tear us apart.
Six years have already passed, and we now have enough strength to protect TVXQ. We made a promise that no matter what happens we will stand by TVXQ. We love you and believe in you, just like we have since the beginning.

Please do not forget our promise. When you are sad and down, there is still us. When you are sad, happy, or having a hard time, just turn your head and we will always be there for you, to support and cheer you on.
TVXQ, we will walk with you to the end.
During those six years, we have matured, and have gained trust for one another. Every scene has been imprinted onto our minds; the sadness, the pain, the touching moments, and the happiness – these are what we shared together. Every single page is the footprints of love. We have grown up maturely; though we may not be able to do much, we have chosen to believe and we choose to protect willingly.

We always wanted to say out loud, “Dong Bang Shin Ki, it has been tough for you, but all the sweat and tears were worth it. Please take care of yourselves!
Dong Bang Shin Ki, please take the courage and the love from each one of us, and keep moving forward.

We will support you towards the road to the future!
Cassiopeia will always be by your side. We will never leave!
We are TVXQ’s Cassiopeia forever.

[TRANS] 091113 Chinese Fans Response To Cancellation Of Concert

〓Our Attitude〓

This morning we received news about the cancellation of the Shenzhen concert. Considering the court dispute at the moment, this wasn’t a decision not thought of.

We cannot say “everyone please calm down, please don’t say anything bad”, because that isn’t facing the truth. However, we hope no one says anything that would hurt the members of TVXQ, doing something that shows you don’t understand the five members. The people we love, they did not do anything wrong. I hope everyone sees and clearly understands this point.

The Shenzhen concert was decided upon by SME and the organiser after the three members proposed the lawsuit. If everything was normal, activities organised for the artist by the company acceptable, but no matter when, it needs to respect the artists wills and thoughts. Artists are not tools, they are human too. SME had secretly accepted the offer of overseas activities without discussing the details with the five members, this action is not respectful to the five members of TVXQ.

At the same time, because of the decision between SME and the Chinese concert organiser, it has led to losses for the fans, and this is not forgivable. Because of SME’s own decision that led to economic and psychological losses of Chinese and overseas fans, we should receive a proper explanation and compensation.

Since the start of the lawsuit, SME had pushed all the blame upon the members, using unrelated topics to cover the real problem, making all of TVXQ’s fans feel very disappointed and angry. Being Korea’s top agency, not respecting group members, ignoring fans reasonable requests, and during the lawsuit which started as a simple issue that could of ended well, but didn’t because of the various disruptions and accusations created against the three members. This issue not only led to the five members of TVXQ go under stress and pain, but it also led fans to fall into despair, to the point where the fans split. Actions like these is unacceptable.

For this times Shenzhen concert, SME again pushes the blame towards the members, making us fans feel very disappointed and angry, we do not hold anymore trust or hope towards SME. It is not the members fault, yet they have them to shoulder the responsibility, letting them face criticisms, this is what the company that brought them up do. This is unacceptable.

We cannot represent everyone, but representing all the fans supportive of TVXQ from Baidu, we cannot forgive SME’s continual injuries and stress given to the three members. The cancellation of the Shenzhen concert is all because of SME’s contract signed with the organiser, without consulting the members, it has no relation to any of the TVXQ members. SME, please stop bringing out all these rumours, which end up hurting the members and splitting the fans.

On another note, we feel dissatisfied with the Chinese organiser of the Shenzhen concert due to their signed documents lying to the fans. Even if we understand that the project needs to have communication with SME, but to make an irresponsible promise with the fans, they too have an undeniable responsibility.

〓Words to everyone〓

First of all, what we want to say most to everyone is – please understand our boys. Following them for nearly six years, we have seen them fulfill their promises bit by bit, watching them carry through with the stress and exhaustion at 1002 in Shanghai moved us, seeing them work so hard up till now, working their best till now. If you truly love them, then you cannot ignore their pure feelings towards their fans. The five members treasure their fans a lot, and this doesn’t need to be judged by others, but it is to be embedded deep in our own hearts.

Therefore, please do not say anything that will hurt them, don’t say anything about not understanding them. Their intention, their pressure, their pains, only we understand the best.

We don’t hope to see any fans of one member give stress to the other members at this time, we hope even more so to not see fans hurting each other. That would be a very immature attitude to have at this time. It is not any of the members wrong, so please do not bother them, don’t let them feel wronged. Everyone please, no matter if you’re a fan of the group or just one member, look at the result of truth and false being mixed together, don’t hide away because you’ll get hurt, because it’s hurting your own family, hurting the members of TVXQ.

On the topic of the Shenzhen concert, our boys have taken in a lot of fault, and in this situation with the court case not being solved, SM has continuously given pressure to the members, hurting them and splitting the fans. If you force them to Shenzhen, then who would be happy? Seeing them smile to us with that exhaustion, will we feel happy? The amount of pressure they take up, is unimaginable by us. The five now are under a lot of hardship, yet they haven’t given up, they keep on persisting, and it’s because of the four words “TVXQ”. If you see this, if you truly love them or just one, if you see someone you love and see them being hurt in silence, they rather stand in between the speculations and the low people, you will not not understand, what they do that for. [T/N TBH, i didn’t really get that last line.. >_<]

So under these circumstances, please stand together with them, everyone please give them all your love and support. Us, that’s all we’ve been doing since.

I believe that many of the bars(on baidu) have seen our drafts for support for the Shenzhen concert, the bar has worked very hard for this. Cheering items have been made, backstage and basic items have also been purchased. Under this situation, to us, it’s also a really great hit. But right now, we must stay strong to protect our boys, and not let the innocent be harmed by rumours, this is both unfair to them and us.

This time the bar has decided on the main theme to be “Stand By You”, no matter if the concert is opening or not, please come with us to fulfill our promises. No matter what happens, we believe them and stand by them.

SM is a douche as we all know. Jaechunsu plainly IGNORED their deadline because agreeing to it would mean that they would have to work under the OLD contract ie. the SM-thinks-its-appropriate-but-the-rest-of-the-world-thinks-its-a-slave-contract. How on EARTH is that related to not being able to participate in the comeback activities when Jaechunsu agreed on continuing DBSK activities and ONLY want fair and just CHANGES in their contract. SERIOUSLY SM is really really pushing it this time, it’s not even negative publicity.. it’s desperation. To either make or break DBSK, they decide to break them. BUT CASSIES WILL NOT LET THAT HAPPEN! SM don’t know the power of us FANS! DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE! ALWAYS KEEP THE FAITH! If the boys believe in themselves and us, we WILL trust them!

SM be damned!
